jIMPLE and faithful family memorials are gradually becoming more numerous 
in proportion as their utility and interest are becoming more fully recognized. 
As a mere family record such a book as this is intensely interesting to 
those whose circle of relatives far and near appear herein, and as the pages are 
turned over and over, so the names of those who are with us, and, the memory of 
those who were but lately with us, arouse, alas ! mingled feelings concerning life's 
ever -recurring curriculum. 

It is twenty years since my father compiled the first edition of this book and 
with his assistance I trust I - have been able to make this second edition acceptable 
to the various families. It may be desirable to state that every care has been 
taken to avoid error, more especially by submitting a proof to the head of each family 
for completion and correction. The additions have been so considerable as to make 
this edition loo pages larger than its predecessor, they include fuller accounts than have 
hitherto appeared of the families of Birkbeck, Darby, Dickinson, Jowitt, Lloyd, and of
